The Language Of Music

This is a video about how music is a ritual which expresses the American Creed.

By Hannah F. from Royal Oak High School in Michigan

Music is a universal language which everyone can understand, no matter their language, race, religion, gender, age or political ideology. When a beat is played, everyone hears it the same way. Music unites Americans and other ethnicities together. Different genres can teach listeners about different cultures, and they can choose to incorporate these different perspectives into their own culture. By talking to others about music and attending concerts, music listeners can meet new people, while expressing themselves culturally and learning about other cultures. Music promotes cross cultural appreciation and breaking barriers. This perspective is explored in this video with help from interviewees Jack A and Dave F, as well as from singer/songwriter Espie Estrella from source ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Music History.’  View my video by clicking here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EZie0XAC9vlNJzW7cHwOz-YlQ5l2pPfH/view?usp=sharing
